How To Cancel A Pre-Order On Xbox? [Complete Guide]

Xbox has added a new feature that allows users to pre-order gaming sets. Xbox Preorders is a strategy by Xbox that will enable you to order Xbox games well before the specified delivery date.

Now let’s see how you can do the same and cancel your pre-order Xbox.

Just like Xbox offers a Pre-Order facility to its users, it also allows them to cancel their Pre-Orders. Individuals can cancel Pre-Orders up to 10 days before the launch of the game.

When the cancellation is performed, you will be billed. After that, you will have to request a refund for the cancellation to take place.
